told or been told sooner that the fbi was investigating a case involving the director of the cia. we're keeping them honest as we do every night not to take sides, you can get that on other cable news channels, but to look for the truth, the facts. here's what we know right now about who knew what and when. according to "wall street journal" the fbi discovered the affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell, in late summer. we'll have more on how in just a moment. so the fbi reportedly knew in late summer that the head of the cia was having an affair, but it wasn't until months later after election day that president obama found out, and the house and senate intelligence committees didn't find out until friday. congressional leaders from both parties are angry, they say they should have been notified sooner that there were potential national security issues. senate intelligence committee chair dianne feinstein said today she is going to investigate why the fbi didn't tell oversight committees about the investigation. >> a decision was made somewhere not to brief us wh
is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. found reason to open an investigation. investigators determined that the e-mails were from general's biographer paula broad wall and she and general petraeus had an fair and neither had done anything criminal but reason that are inexplicable at this moment, there is more after thousands and thousands of e-mails were discovered thousands and thousands of e-mails. and general allen is also married, and he defies there was an affair and denies that there was any wrongdoing. and there is another twist. sources are now telling fox news that the f.b.i. agent jill kelley contacted was booted off the case when he became obsessed with the case, and investigators discovered that he sent that shirtless photo of himself to kelley, the latest in a tangled web that the wh
because it is not dealer -- clear if she was active. the f.b.i. has no evidence that david petraeus provided classified documents to her. >>shepard: the other woman, general petraeus we learned, came to the aid of the tampa socialite jill kelley's twin sister, natalie. >>reporter: both of these sisters, they are twins, faced pretty steep debt and natalie was also involved in a very sticky custody battle and both of these sisters cultivated relationships with powerful men in washington and generals who were rising stars at central command. natalie was involved in a custody battle with a former bush administration official and general petraeus wrote a letter on of behalf of natalie appealing to a judge in the custody battle "we hosted them and the kelley family for christmas dinner this past year" and in each case we have seen a very love willing relationship between natalie and her son. the judge wrote "she appears to lack any appreciation or respect for honesty and integrity." >>shepard: thank you. with us the journal list and author of 19 boxes on intelligence and current affair af
it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing h
't the director of the fbi would tell the president of the united states that he may be compromised. >> new details on the developing store store. an american family living in third world conditions after sandy. it is not even anger now. it is just broken people. people are being brokep. and our nation on the brink of massive tax hike. two leaders going head-to-head over how to deal with our debt and they need to get it done now. >> they are damaging our question. and start to solve the problem. we are serious about reducing the debt. the wealthy east americans stop the americans from going after the cliff. >> there is new reaction to the resignation of the cia. the timing of david petraeus's departure. it is a day after the four-star general ended his career . he quit because he had an extra marital affair and now we know more about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of the woman he was with. we reported that she is biographer paula broadwell. during that process her name came up. and all of this information coming to light on just days before the hearing on benghazi, libya te
of defense. >> the fbi found up to 35,000 pages of documents, some dating back two years during the investigation. according to a senior official close to allen, one message the afghan commander sent warned kelly she had been threatened. the official says allen had received an anonymous message, now believed to be from broadwell. the pentagon was called in because allen is subject to military law. but why did this only come out now in public view? >> we have a large amount of alleged material that went between these individuals, as much as 30,000 pages. it's not clear whether this was viewed as a relatively minor question or whether it was not apparent until the very end that the general was involved. >> allen was to appear thursday for senate hearing to become the military head of nato. now that is on hold. >> we need to be careful not to have this cloud of scandal start to color the image of general allen because the minute that happens, it may be almost too late to sustain his leadership. >> wolf, so everybody is talking about 30,000 pages of documents and e-mails. it sounds
to the pentagon for the process underway with regard to i the pentagon and the ig on the one hand and the fbi in regard to general petraeus. >> i refer you to the fbi. as i understand it they have protocols in place for when the notify the legislative and executive branches of investigations. the fbi is the place to go in terms of explanation the otocols they follow. i would refer, that said earlier, to policies in place at the fbi for how they deal with notifications investigations. lou: as you saw and heard, a frustring day for the white house press corps. the president spokesman however did not shy away from a question on this petraeus would testify in front of congress on benghazi. made it clear the administration is fmly supportive of petraeus' successor. he will be facing questions that are still lingering over if the cia refused requests for help on the ground on september 11 and why three days after that attack then director petraeus but in the attack in the flash mob incited by childish, amateurish, less than 14 minus long youtube video. >> is up toongresto make decisions of who is c
generals, socialite and author, f.b.i. agent and a tangled web growing by the minute. it's the sex scandal that rocked washington. ahead of important hearings on capitol hill. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. the unfair that untanned c.i.a. career of general david petraeus and the assassination of a u.s. ambassador and three others in cincinnati bengals. the former is a story that is changing by the minute. while the latter is being seen in a new light ahead of congressional hearings. we have fox team coverage tonight. intelligence correspondent catherine herridge looks at the matc machinations on capitol hill, and who knew what when. but first, jennifer griffin untangles the complicated relationships here. there are a lot of them. good evening. >> good evening, bret. in the military they call this literal damagcollateral damage. as of monday, c.i.a. director resigned over affair with his biographer. today we learn the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is implicated in the scandal as well as unnamed f.b.i. official who was taken off the case for beco
from an fbi employee concerned that national security might have been breached as a result of the affair. cantor was told on october 27th. president obama didn't find out about the affair until after election day. congressional leaders from both parties are upset that neither they nor the president were informed until late last week. >> obviously this was a matter involving a potential compromise of security. and the president should have been told about it at the earliest date. >> reporter: a u.s. official said there was no breach of security as a result of the affair. a cantor aide says the congressman called the fbi's leadership to report the information he got on october 31st. but according to "the wall street journal," the fbi's probe had already been under way for months. "the journal" says the fbi's investigation began in may when it started looking into e-mails described as threatening sent to a woman cnn has identified as jill kelley, a family friend of petraeus'. the fbi traced the e-mails back to paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. and by late summer, "the wal
with a fox news alert. an f.b.i. investigation that led to the resignation of david petraeus. the investigation was trillion dollars after a woman petraeus was having an affair with sent threatening emails to another woman who both of them knows. good morning, everyone,. >> a lot of questions remain unanswered. thanks for joining us. they're considered stunning new developments this morning from a scandal that's still continuing to unravel. it's also raised questions about the woman at the receiving end of the emails. there may be more than one and their connection to general petraeus. peter doocy is live in washington with the latest. >> we don't know who the third woman is involved in the email triangle between paula broadwell and general petraeus but it's not his wife, holly. and the f.b.i. was not looking for lusty emails when they started the investigation. they were looking for evidence of harassment. after they traced the harassing messages to paula broadwell's computer they discovered salacious notes between the four star general and his buyographer. >> the f.b.i. cam
or coverup? >> i have a hard time believing the whole story. first of all how an e-mail matter becomes an fbi matter, how it was investigated so many months and it wasn't until election night the fbi suddenly realized it involved david petraeus? if they were investigating three or four months, that would have been the first thing they found out. then should have brought it to the president's attention so none of it adds up. the challenging thing for gen. petraeus, with his new position he's not allowed to communicate with the press. he's known about it. they have had correspondents with the cia in libya within 24 hours they knew what was happening. >> petraeus wags telling her things. she said there was a failure in the system. she said petraeus knew all of this. but that he wasn't allowed to talk to the press because of his position. she's telling people this. now that's pretty serious, since petraeus did brief congressmen soon appear the a tack in a closeddor session and he doesn't seem to have told them any of this. >> on a personal level his resignation is appropriate. a lot of questions
told is that once someone of the director's stature comes even within the scope of an fbi investigation, not the subject, but the scope, there has to be immediate briefings to the ranking members and the chairman of the house and senate intelligence committees. we are not clear, at least tonight, that that happened. >> greta: all right. when did this affair begin? when the affair is still secret from the time it began until today is a time when someone is potentially blackmail material. do we know when this began -- or not the point it ended, but when it's gone to the public domain. >> we don't have specific information on when the affair began. once the story broke, the cia director was resooning, within the first half hour, several people here at fox got multiple phone call, pointing to this author, paula broadwell and to the thyme frame in afghanistan, when the biography was being written and cia director petraeus was the eye staff commander. we're talking about 2010, 2011, before he took the position at the cia. >> greta: i take it when you go to the cia, especially head of the cent
of an fbi investigation, not the subject, but the scope, there has to be immediate briefings to the ranking members and the chairman of the house and senate intelligence committees. we are not clear, at least tonight, that that happened. >> greta: all right. when did this affair begin? when the afir is secret from it began until today, is a time that someone is potentially blackmail material. do we know -- not where itenned, but gone to the public domain. >> we don't have the specific information on when the affair began. but once the story broke, the cia director was reine, within a half hour, several people at fox got multiple folkphone calls, pointing to the author and specifically to the thyme frame in afghanistan when the biography was being written by broadwell and the cia director petraeus was the commander. we are talking about 2010, into 2011, when he took the position at the cia. >> greta: i take it when you go into the cia, there there is a security check or you fill out forms under oath, egg you are not blackmail material, have you nothing to create a problem for national securi
that the f.b.i. was investigating general petraeus at that time. however, we're told that holder was not given details during that period. source tells us that is consistent with long-standing bureau policy not to brief congress or the white house in the middle of a criminal investigation. when it does notvo a security threat -- not involve a security threat. members of congress wanted to be briefed, they said. it appears the probe began when a petraeus family friend reported to the f.b.i. she was receiving anonymous threatening e-mails and investigators linked those e-mails to paula broadwell, the general's biographer. the tone of the e-mail suggested that broadwell perceived the woman as a romantic rival. the facebook reportedly discovered the affair between broadwell and petraeus. as far as the timing there are reports that the investigation concluded just before the election. we're told paula broadwell's second and time interview with f.b.i. was on the friday before the election. that is when they were able to formally conclude no crimes were committed. now also classified do
and classified information now at the center of the david patraeus scandal. the fbi confirms a classified document was found on the computer while reporting that there is nothing to indicate that those documents in question came from patraeus. this is as we learn that sensitive, classified information about the cia aniks in benghazi and the presence and captured libyan terrorists. the statement came during a speech at hurt, moderate, the university of denver on october 26. the cia flat at denies that any terrorists were held in benghazi. this is part of that cia statement, reading in the suggestion that the agency is still in the detention business is uninformed, and baseless. fox news is siding to sources in benghazi and a high level official in washington, off three of whom corroborate the statements about the holding of terrorists. coincidentally or not, that 26 of october is the same day that to journalists for foreign policy magazine discovered classified documents detailing security concerns in benghazi. they found those documents lying on the floor of what remained of the u.s. cons
. there are many others who do but i don't think all officers have the skill. >> the f.b.i. became aware that the c.i.a. director mistress was sending harassing e-mails from several dummy accounts to this woman. jill kelly. petraeus family friend who lived in tampa, florida. kelly's family spent holidays with david petraeus and his wife holly. the f.b.i. became concerned an attempt was being made to blackmail the c.i.a. director and confronted him about the affair within the last six weeks. it wrapped up his investigation with broadwell's second and final interview. four days before the election. petraeus submitted his resignation to the president thursday. two days after the election. and a week before he was to testify on capitol hill, in closed door intelligence briefings about benghazi. he no longer plans to testify. there are concerns that broadwell may have revealed secret information about the benghazi investigation that she gleaned from her relationship with petraeus. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the c.i.a. annex had actually take an couple of libyan militia members priso
we're joined by senate finance committee chair, diane finestein, as new details about the fbi's investigation and key players emerge. >> we received no advanced notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> some of petraeus' former military aides tell nbc news, they were uncomfortable with biographer paula broadwell's access to the general. >> i thought this was a little bit strange, that he would take someone who's never written a book and allow them such unfettered access and allow them to write what is really the first biography. >>> cliff talks. president obama reaches out to business and labor to rally support for his plan to raise taxes on the rich. are republicans and democrats any closer to making a deal? >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think that the vast majority of americans agree with that. the question is, how d
of events. on november 2nd, the fbi concluded after the final interview given by paula broadwell that there was no basis for criminal charges. officials tell nbc news that national intelligence director james clapper was told about the investigation the following week, on election day. clapper informed the white house the next day. officials say it was not until thursday, november 8th, however, that president obama was first notified and met with petraeus, who then offered to resign. the president accepted that resignation on friday, the same day that leaders of the house and senate committees first learned of the affair. diane finestein joins me now. congressman, why did you and your colleague on the house side not know about this for all of these months? >> because a decision was made somewhere not to brief us, which is atypical. generally, what we call the four corners, the chair and rankings of both committees are briefed on operationally sensitive matters. this is certainly an operationally sensitive matter. but we weren't briefed. i don't know who made that decision. and i
, and the fbi investigation that turned up evidence of this affair turned up no evidence of breaching classified information, then why did the affair itself get reported to the director of national intelligence and then the security staff at the white house and ultimately the president? this was private misbehavior that was a breach of personnel rules, but not the law. is the fbi the armed wing of the ci acres human resources department? why did the fbi report the affair to anyone. there was no classified information breached here. no reported breach of david petraeus's systems. any e-mail was not his cia e-mail. it was not like the former director who got busted taking home classified information on his home laptop. so this was not a national security matter. and it was not a criminal matter. so why was this brought up to the director of national intelligence by the fbi. we do not know. what we do know is once james clapper, head of the national intelligence, found out about the affair on election day, he urged david petraeus to resign. the following day, wednesday, mr. clapper reportedly notif
on the country and overall questions about the fbi. >> the pentagon says it has uncovered 20 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate documents exchanged between general allen and kelley the woman's whose complaints first triggered the investigation that brought down petraeus. what about paula broadwell's role? late monday night with her consent federal agents served broadwell's home for hours, carting out boxes and bags as they are wrapping up their investigation. >> defense secretary leon panetta on route to australia was the first top administration official to comment on the petraeus departure. >> i think he took the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all the challenges that face you, and have -- that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >> panetta a former cia director and the washington shuffle with panetta and clinton saying they want out of the second term. will john kerry now go to the pentagon? can susan rice be confirmed as secretary of state? and will nancy pelosi run for leader again? and what a welcome to washington the new
